How to Earn Free Cash

Free Cash

  1. Join Ebates – OMG, my fave way to earn easy money.

  2. Here’s a big list of Class Action Settlements: If any apply to you – products you’ve bought, services you’ve used, etc – fill out the forms, and they’ll send you out a refund check or PayPal payment. They usually take awhile to send the payments – and sometimes it’s only a couple of bucks. But I submit a claim for every one that I qualify for, and have gotten some checks for $50+ before. Easy peasy.
  3. Get $20 free, that you can cash out as PayPal, Amazon gift card, etc – from Ibotta! Stop throwing away your receipts after grocery shopping – scan them here, and they give you no-strings free cash back on tons of purchases. It’s quick and easy, and I earn every.single.time I shop.

You get invites to fill out surveys, and earn points for giving feedback and opinions on things like your shopping habits, feelings about new ads, and thoughts on politics and current events. If you keep an eye out in news articles, you’ll sometimes see statistics pulled from YouGov surveys, so the opinions you give matter!

Love it!}
  6. FREE MAKEUP! Ok, this isn’t technically “free,” – but practically. I’ve signed up for BoxyCharm in January – and am freaking amazed at the amount of value they pack into their pretty packages!

Then, once you are a member, you can get on the Waitlist for BoxyLuxe, which ships 4 times a year. You can see what that box looks like here: BoxyLuxe Uh-MAY-Zing First Shipment on Instagram. Just ONE product, the IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream (you know how much I love IT Cosmetics, since being introduced during the Mom Makeover), would’ve been the price I paid for the ENTIRE box – so it’s like getting all of the other palettes, brushes, polishes, and pretties for free! Every month is $20 bucks, at at least one item alone is worth that, every time. I’m blown away by these guys.

Do These 3 Things Before Shopping to Save Big!

This money-saving post is sponsored by Groupon Coupons, all opinions are my mine. #GrouponCoupons

A little bit of planning before shopping can save you major amounts of money. Just an extra 5-10 minutes can lead to savings. I know that we’re all busy mommas, but once you get into a routine of regularly doing these three things before sitting down to do some online shopping or heading out to run errands for the day will be totally worth it, pinky promise.

Groupon Coupons savings ideas

I’m on a ridiculously small budget these days. I didn’t work all of last year, due to some scary health stuff going on, so we’ve gotten to use to living a pretty simple, frugal lifestyle. But we still like to have some fun, which means I have to make our limited funds stretch as far as possible. Here are the three simple things I do before doing any shopping – whether it’s groceries, clothing, household supplies, or a night out. Easy peasy stuff: [Read more…]

Earn Money by Surfing the Web

{This post contains affiliate links. All opinions are always my own.}

The economy is improving, but many of us are still on a tight budget. Maybe you’ve been laid off, or had your hours cut. Maybe you’re a stay at home mom who wants a way to earn extra money while still being home with the kids. Or maybe you just want some simple ways to earn extra cash in your free time. My post, 10 Ways to Make Money from Home is my most popular post ever, of all time – it’s been pinned over 280k times! So, I figured since frugal tips seem to be pretty popular with you guys, once a week I’ll share a new way to get free or super cheap stuff, or how to save money.

This week, I’m talking about earning with Neilsen. Neilsen is a huge company – They have a lot of different branches to what they do. But they’re main focus is on collecting opinions and data from people across the country, so that they can use that info to help companies develop products, marketing plans, and more. So they have programs that reward people for helping share those opinions. Think about it – years ago, brands had to spend big bucks to bring people together for in-person focus groups. Now, with everyone on the web, it’s easier than ever for tons of people to share their thoughts to help brands create the best products. And they pay you for it!
